Hi, I’m Chris. Well, I was born in Iowa and have lived in a small down just
north of Des Moines all my life. I’m a Sophomore in College. I attend Iowa
State University and am Majoring in MIS.
In case you hadn’t noticed, I am gay. I am out to my parents and they took
it really coo. In fact they are taking it a bit to cool if you ask me. They
thought I was dating one of my friends and they were bothering me about it.
I do however have on wonderful boyfriend named Adam.
We’ve been going out since Dec 17. It’s a long story as to how became boyfriends, but I love him
drealy and that’s what matters. I’ve known
that I was gay since I was about 12 or so. But I didn’t start coming out tell
just this last year, in fact I told my cousin first, back on Oct. 11, 2000,
National Coming Out Day. She took it really well and then I told my friends.
Who most of them were also gay. I don’t know why it took me so long to tell
them, but it was cool once I did.
In my free time, I’m usually found wondering around Des Moines or in my dorm
room studying. I like to hang out at Java Joes, and The Loop. There’s really
a lot to do in Des Moines, and I like it here now. When I was growing up I
didn’t really have anything to do cause I was pretty antisocial. But now that
people know who I am, I’m liking it and finding a lot of stuff to do around
here. It’s a nice city.
There’s a lot to me, I may seem simple on the outside, but on the inside,
I’m very complex, like most people. Most of my friends really don’t know what’s
going on in my head. If you want to know, ask. I won’t tell unless you ask,
I’m one of those types of people. Small talk just isn’t my thing, I like it,
if I’m not in charge of the conversation. But I won’t start small talk. Well
I usually won’t start talking unless someone talks to me. That’s just the
way I am, Shy. That describes me well. I’m Shy.
I really suck at a lot of things, I’m not artistic, I can’t do music, I hate
writing, I dislike phones, I don’t know what it is about them, but I don’t
like talking on them. But at the things I can do, I do them well. I like computers,
I’m a geek. People tell me I’m not the "geeky" type, but I spend
a lot of time around computers and working on them.
I’m also really good when it comes to the outdoors, now granted, I can’t
name 10 types of trees, or point out 10 different plants and tell you what
they are. But I can spot poisonous plants and tell you that you can eat that
plants fruit. I like to camp, it’s one of those things. I also just enjoy
being out doors, looking at nature. I love summer nights. There’s this place
at Camp Mitigwa, it’s called Frankel Field. It’s a big open field with grass
about 4 feet tall. I love to just go there late at night and lay in the grass
listening to the animals and looking at the stars, it’s a secluded area of
camp, so there’s never anyone else there. I love the outdoors.
As for my family, I have a brother and well my parents. I recently told my
parents that I was gay, and my cousin and one of my aunts knows, but I don’t
think my brother has been officially told. They are all nice, they’re a family
and such. They get on my nerves a lot But I can deal.
Here’s a picture of me that Adam took at
801 Grand in Des Moines, from 09/22/01.
